Discovery & Exploration

Welcome to the Discovery and Exploration Community!

Whether you are unsure of your interests, undecided on which of your interests to pursue, or considering post-duke options, the Discovery and Exploration Community is for you!

Within this community you will have access to resources to guide you in becoming more self-aware, exploring careers and interests, designing your Duke experience to make it unique to your needs, and making decisions. Exploring can take on different forms including browsing online resources, connecting with Academic Advising to discuss majors and learn more about specific subjects of interest, utilizing office hours to connect with professors, meeting with career advisors to uncover or discuss your interests, and conducting career conversations with individuals in fields of interest.

Throughout this process of exploring, remember that as you grow and engage in different experiences, you will learn a lot about yourself! Don’t fret if you feel like you don’t have it all figured out right now (you don’t have to) or if you notice your interests shifting, you have support and resources available to support and encourage you!

From first year undergrad to nearing the end of your PhD program, join this community by personalizing your Hub and setting alerts to discover resources, career advice, job/internship opportunities, and events that will help you connect your skills to roles of interest!
